Here's the link for the (older) Touch:

http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...date-2.4.0.zip

The Glo's firm is probably this one:

http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...date-2.4.0.zip

but I just guessed the address from the touch's link, so use at your own risk!

I just sideloaded this to my Glo, it updated and restarted fine, device information reports Software Version 2.4.0 (84fbb7111a, 2/12/13)

Thanks!

hello,
I updated my KOBO GLO and my MINI KOBO arm and 2 are spent in 2.4.0 without any problem.
Remains to test whether all the bugs of version 2.3.1 have been corrected. 2 months waiting with a catastrophic release, this is the minimum that could be expected.
thank you

I used the link for my KT bought Dec. 2011 in NYC and it worked perfectly.

Remember use at your own risk!

What if I put the firmware of the "older" Touch on a new one??
I brik it?
And if I put the Glo firmware on an older one?
Always brik?

Unfortunately, yes.

You can find out which firmware your Touch needs by doing a factory reset and letting it download the newest available firmware. BEFORE restarting the device, check the size of the files downloaded to the .kobo folder. Then check the sizes for the Touch and Glo firmwares for the same version from the direct links in this thread.

It seems to me to go back at the ice age of the overclocking, when you activate the math cooprocessor of the 8086

I hope soon we'll discover a easiest method

Haha Yes, indeed, or just a warning saying "this firmware isn't meant for your device" instead of it installing it anyway and getting bricked.

Simple, but useful. What could we ask better than that?

I have a Touch and under the Device Information it says the software version is 2.3.1 r45611, 12/7/12 - this was downloaded to me through the Kobo Desktop app. In the Kobo Firmware thread this firmware code relates to the Kobo Glo . . so should I sideload the new firmware for the Glo? Thanks!

Unfortunately this is not enough proof. The Touch firmware for 2.3.1 does not mention a version number. More importantly, if you look at firmware 2.3.2, both the Touch and Glo firmware have the same number.

I'm afraid the only way to find out is to see which version (file size) is downloaded to your Touch. OR, if you purchased your Touch long before the Glo came out, you can know you'd need the Touch firmware.

Or be cautious and just wait for the official release to be pushed to your device.
